10.000 years ago in a world of Aonia, a great war broke out between the force of good and evil that will shaped the future of all being in Aonia. Humankind of all kingdoms have set aside their differences and united under the same banner fighting against their nemesis, the demon race which is rule by the infamous Dark Lord. The long war has span into numerous centuries however eventually this war too has come to an end.
The Dark Lord was defeated...
Champions of the human known as ‘Heroes’ are in fact the key element in the Dark Lord’s defeat. Both side had suffer great losses from the war, the humans had taken full control of Aonia, while the remaining demons race including the gravely injured Dark Lord had been banish into the Dark Realm, a different dimension full of despair. A peaceful 10.000 years then pass by, making the tale of the Great War now nothing more than a distant past long forgotten.
You have just reached your 20th birthday, at this moment you started to see odd images in your mind along with a creepy whisper that only you can hear. After a moment of pain and struggle, you finally regain all of your true memories along with your true purpose in life. You are actually a demon sent here from the Dark Realm through a small rift between the two dimensions. Demons and Human are pretty much the same in appearance, the difference between them is the power that courses through them and their nature, light made humans and darkness made demons. Thus is why you were able to live in the world ruled by humans for 20 years with your power suppressed by the Dark lord until you have come of age. Finally your purpose in life is nothing other than to bring the Dark Lord back to Aonia and revive the demons race. You are now the champions of the demon known as ‘Villains’.
Hello there and welcome, it’s been while since I made my last Rp but I’ll try my best to make it as enjoyable as I can. Anyway the Rp will be set in a fantasy world of Aonia, where you won’t be playing as heroes for the humans but rather the villains for the demons. Evil is your main source of power so feel free to be as evil as you like. I’ll be controlling how the main story goes and give out choices to each character for the players to pick, each decision of yours will trigger a different event corresponding to the choices you make. So go expand your demonic territory, build an army, make allies, make enemies, fight the heroes or even destroy a kingdom for the return of the Dark Lord.
This section will be reserved for a summary of the current story progress so people can read through it and catch up if they are lost. Both for new players and returning Inactive players.
I'm not really good in making maps but this we give you a rough idea of how each kingdom are located through Aonia. The map will only show the main 4 kingdom of the humans at the moment, i'll then add the players territories as they grow. The map does not contain town and villages but they are scatter around the place.
The most powerful kingdom out of the four. It is the kingdom that give birth to countless heroes, the guild headquarter is also located here.
This kingdom is well known for their magic and knowledge, the best magic academy in Aonia is located here.
The wealthiest kingdom in Aonia, this kingdom is revolve around trades and business.
A new kingdom born from the remnants of the Dark Lord's kingdom.

?. More rules might be added, but i'll officially inform everyone.
Name: (Your name after you have renounce your human side, Psst.. go for an evil theme or not up to you)
Appearance: (Image or description are fine)
Biography: (Give me a story about your character before reaching 20 and little of what happen after)
Powers: (This power is granted to you by the Dark Lord)
(Example: Undeath - The user may turn corpses within a limited radius into an undead minion to command)
Territories: (You all first start up somewhere on the map of Aonia around one of the kingdom, you might've lived in a cave, tower or a normal house which will be related to your biography and that will be your first territory. PM me about where you want to start before applying would be good so you won't need to change anything afterwards)
Demons does not required food or sleep, they gain energy through life essence from the living which include humans, animals or even trees, Each will give a different amount of essence. However they also survive through food and sleep like humans so it just depends on the circumstances. We are a superior race indeed.
Seems like ii'll be putting my ideas of a new skill system on hold for now, hopefully i can make it work with another Rp i might create in the future. But i'll test out the other system that i had in mind with this Rp and see how effective it would be. This will still hold an open-world aspect though along with other things that will make the story work.
Anyway the Rp is officially up and start accepting now.
1. Yea, since you gain your power on your 20th birthday so everyone will play on the same start line, adding more years could means things like more time to build your army and stuff.
2. The HP will represent health pool of that character, it will be use during battle to calculate the damage you dealt and receive. For example, you are in a battle against a giant beetle
Rokudo swiftly dodge the beetle attacks and perform an immediate counter strike swinging his sword in a wide arc.
Once the beetle HP reaches 0, you basically defeated it. This will be use for all battles within the Rp, to make it easy for players to follow. At the same time you must also keep track of your HP since yours can reach 0 as well. Keeping track of the NPC and character HP is my job though, it will be on all of my posts for the players to check on it.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Name:Abbadon Master of nightmares.
Appearance:This is me with all my equipment
Biography:When i was reaching 20 i worked as a blacksmith and enchanter near RUNETHIA. I had ran a succesful blacksmith and enchanting shop. It wasnt very hard to get materials i needed since there was a mine near my shop. I became well known by alot of people. But when i reached twenty and found out i was a powerfull demon i started trying to kill the heroes who purchased equipment from my shop. I started enchanting equipment with bad enchantments or making equipment purposefully broken and then making it go throught a gelatinous cube so it looks new and like a good weapon. (This is a reference.)
Powers:The dark lord gave me the power to create shadestone a powerfull demonic metal and powerfull dark enchantments. So i can make great weaponary and armor.
Territories:My territory is my blacksmith/enchantment shop and my mine.
Other:I added this since i needed to say some stuff. My weapons are: Shadestone daggers enchanted with dark enchantments to give them the ability to either be more painfull or lethal or cause corruption. I also have a Blade n chain made of shadestone its designed to be as lethal as possible and be able to break things down. A blade n chain is practicly a stick where you press a button and a chain with a blade at the end of it shoots out. As for my final weapon i have a magical orb i can use to fire purple flames. I might make more weaponary in the rp. As for armor i have the one shown on the picture its made of shadestone and is enchanted to let me float and cause fear to those around me.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Oh and i forgot to mention that i can summon shadestone of all kinds of types like crystal solid or even energy. So its not always just the same old solid type. However some types require more effort to summon.
Upon further consideration, I'm no longer as interested as I was after the interest check. I was very enticed by two main factors: the open world, and the prospect playing interesting villains. Both of those are still present, but there are some things which diminish my interest.
Foremost is that all characters must be the same age. I feel as though this has the effect of limitng creativity, and could lead to a plethora of similar characters rather than a diverse cast. I have no problem with playing a twenty year old from time to time, but with this roleplay, I'm not coming up with many ideas.
Additionally, while the open-worldness is still present, I feel as though I misinterpreted it at the beginning for being more open than it was. The obligation of powers, the limitations on character diversity (age and race), and what seems to be a heavy focus on combat diminish what I originally foresaw.
Now, none if that is to say this isn't a roleplay woth great potential - it definitely is. However, it's not the roleplay I anticipated after the interest check, and it is no longer as interesting to me. That's no one's fault, I believe. Interest checks are easy to misinterpret, and I'm prone to anticipate what I really want.
So, good luck, and have fun. I hole this roleplay does well.
